Twenty-Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Dear Friends, It is now one year since we launched the parish booklet.
The booklet listed all the groups which are involved in our parish. It was
a very attractively laid out booklet and a lot of hard work went into its
preparation. Perhaps it might be a timely reminder for people to get out
the booklet and read through the information on the various groups
active in the parish. Perhaps you might even consider becoming
involved in some of these groups.
Fr Michael
We welcome into our Parish through baptism
